Review: Four Seasons Hong Kong and Executive Club Lounge

Four Seasons Hong Kong Review-Jacuzzi and View from Pool Deck

 

This Four Seasons Hong Kong Review, with the Executive Club Lounge, is from our recent site inspection stay. The best way to reserve all Four Seasons hotels and resorts is with TravelSort, a Four Seasons Preferred Partner, or your existing FSPP advisor. That's because Preferred Partner reservations receive top priority for upgrades, ahead of AMEX Fine Hotels & Resorts, Virtuoso, and other booking channels.

Four Seasons Hong Kong Location and Check-In

The Four Seasons Hong Kong is at 8 Finance Street, but the easiest way to get there if taking the Airport Express train from Hong Kong Airport is to follow the signs to it from the IFC Mall, where the Hong Kong station is located. You'll take a short escalator down to the hotel and cross the lobby to the front desk to check-in (or be escorted up to the Executive Club Lounge to check-in, if you have lounge access included in your stay).

We arrived rather late in the evening, and check-in was thankfully friendly and efficient.

Four Seasons Hong Kong Deluxe Harbour View Room

Deluxe Harbour View rooms are 484 square feet in size, with either 1 king bed or 2 double beds. These rooms can accommodate a maximum of either 3 adults, or 2 adults and 1 child. Our room had two double beds, as we'd requested, and we both slept incredibly soundly. Four Seasons has our favorite bedding, from the plush yet supportive mattress, to the soft, high thread count sheets.

A fruit basket welcomed us, and there were additional fruit and chocolate treats for my son: fresh pineapple, berries, and sugar-free chocolate.

In the morning, we awoke to a beautiful view of Victoria Harbour:

The bathroom has double sinks, together with a walk-in glass enclosed shower and a separate soaking tub.

Bath products are L'Occitane Pomelo and Vetiver (related to lemon grass), with a pleasing citrus scent.

Four Seasons Hong Kong Executive Club Lounge

Only a few Four Seasons properties have a club lounge, and the Four Seasons Hong Kong’s Executive Lounge on the 45th floor is well worth paying extra for, if you haven’t booked a room that already includes club lounge access. All suites include complimentary Executive Club Lounge access.

The lounge serves a daily breakfast buffet, afternoon tea, and evening hors d’oeuvres (including a noodle bar) and cocktails:

Breakfast: 6:30-10:30am weekdays, 7am-11am weekends

Afternoon Tea: 3-5pm

Light Supper and Cocktails: 5:30-8pm

I like that breakfast offers dim sum, fish and noodles among its savory options, in addition to standard breakfast fare such as fresh fruit, eggs, yogurt, cereal and pastries.

Since we eat a lot of yogurt, we're also fanatical about great yogurt, and were thrilled to see our favorite French yogurt, from Bordier:

We were there for just a few minutes of afternoon tea before having to depart for the airport, but I enjoyed some macarons, and was impressed that there was even a vegan, gluten free chocolate cake offered.

I was also thrilled to see that the jams were none other than Alain Milliat, my favorite purveyor of fruit purees and jams.

  • Express check-in and check-out
  • Garment pressing service (up to six garments per day)
  • 24-hour personalized business and concierge services
  • Complimentary private use of the boardroom for one hour per stay, subject to availability

Swimming Pools

Don’t miss the swimming pools at the hotel, with their panoramic views of Victoria Harbour and Kowloon. There’s a large main pool, as well as a dedicated lap pool, and plenty of loungers with umbrellas.

Soon after we sat down, an attendant provided us iced water. And while we weren’t at the pool all that long, we enjoyed some delicious dark chocolate that was brought by as a poolside treat.

Dining

The Four Seasons Hong Kong is home to 3 Michelin star Lung King Heen, a local and visitor favorite for dim sum (reserve far in advance) and 2 Michelin star Caprice, the hotel's French restaurant.

 

The Verdict

Competition in the Hong Kong luxury hotel market is fierce, but for many of my clients, the Four Seasons Hong Kong remains their favorite, and I can see why. The Executive Lounge is excellent, as ever, with attentive service, delicious, high quality food presentations, and always the offer of your favorite fresh squeezed juice, espresso drink or other libation.

The outdoor pool deck is also beautiful, accommodating both serious swimmers, with its lap pool, and leisure swimmers and families in its main pool.
